to brighten your day

As a reward to myself for finishing a few things on my mile long to do list, I headed out to the
nursery to pick up a few pansies for the front yard.

There is something about these cheerful colors and smiling flower faces that just brightens any day.

In the hustle and bustle of life I had forgotten the simple pleasure these sweet little annuals can be.

I hope you have a little something cheerful to brighten your day!
